Alongside Gilles Peterson and Brownswood Music, we are excited to announce the launch of the official public vote for the Worldwide Awards 2018. You can have your say in the Track of the Year, Album of the Year and Jazz Album of the Year categories.
The Worldwide Awards are an annual celebration of the leftfield underground, set up to “celebrate a side of the music scene that often gets ignored”, as Gilles puts it. Saturday 20th January 2018 marks the return to London’s KOKO. It is shaping up to be a mighty lineup, with confirmed acts including IAMDDB, BCUC, Khruangbin, James Holden, Jamz Supernova.
Drawn from the multitude of award categories presented on the night, the heavyweight Album of the Year, Jazz Album of the Year and Track of the Year awards are launched to the public vote as of Thursday 14th December. Gilles has curated a long list of contenders for all categories and it’s up to you to decide who wins.
The voting season kicks off with a Worldwide Awards special on Worldwide FM on Thursday 14th December during Gilles’ Brownswood Basement show, where he’ll playing through the contenders for all three categories.
VOTING CLOSES MONDAY 8TH JANUARY 23:59PM.
